  • I've read that Twitter's user demographics tilt heavily toward Generation X. The youth of the world (Millennials and younger) just don't tweet very much.

  • Simnett said "...profit-centric Web-based businesses".

    When did the idea of a business being "profit-centric" become a) worth mentioning and b) opprobrious?

    What the fuck else is a business supposed to be? Loss-centric? Break-even centric (there are other words for those)?

    Is this looking-glass land, or what?

    Simnett, you and your "marketing executives" are talking bollocks in the first degree.

    LOL bilby. You're like that wizard guy from Monty Python and the Holy Grail who shoots fire out of his hands at anything he sees. :D

  • Gramatically correct as the comment may be, it relies upon a false premise. There is no Twitter Generation per se. Rather, a disheveled phalanx of Internet-empowered lemmings have tried to delegate responsibility for their social conscience to a number of profit-centric Web-based businesses -- including Twitter and Facebook but by no means limited to these. A better expression to characterize this sociological phenomenon was given to us in 1988 by William J. Donnelly's prescient book, The Confetti Generation. The Millenials, as they are termed by marketing executives, have forfeited their personal data in exchange for the false assurance that they have lots of friends.

  • It's plausible, and probably serviceable, as the example demonstrates. But what strikes me about this word is how much the Twitter generation exists for the sake of its own navel, and how they perceive T to be the very centre of human experience and thus feel the need for a tubby-keg of terms to redefine it.
